Our Partners and Sponsors
We are a 501c3 not-for-profit, free public service for Virginians. To cover the expense of operating, we rely on contributions from organizations in Virginia that have made a commitment to improving the lives of older adults, people with disabilities, veterans, and their caregivers and families. Without the help of these organizations, we could not provide our valuable services throughout the Commonwealth.
